Filling the Void series, 2015
Mixed media sculpture

Loss of loved one is a common human experience and is common among every family. It affects each family in a number of ways. For my family, we have lost one of the family members, which is my little brother. When the person we loves dies, a void instantly present in our lives because the place they filled is empty. But actually there existence continue to persist. They just remain in memory that is a different perceivable form.

This project is a visual storytelling about a mother who lost her son and the memory of him that lives on in her daily life. Her everyday objects with the missing parts represent the void in her life occurring after her son is gone. The different fragile materials are chosen to fill the void part and communicate that he still exists in memory.
